Westbrook and Adams lead OKC to road win……..
It is on to the City of Brotherly Love for Friday nights game with the 76ers………..
The boos were there to welcome Paul George back to Indiana. He did not play one of his better games tonight but Steven Adams strong inside play and a fine performance by the Oklahoma City reserves allowed the Thunder to beat the Indiana Pacers 100-95. It was George’s return to Indiana after his trade to OKC this summer. The win brings the Thunder to 13-14 and stops the Pacers winning streak at four games.
George made two free throws with 10.7 seconds to go after he was fouled on a steal on the Pacers final possession. George was 3-14 from the floor with two rebounds and was roundly given the business on every touch. He seems to not allow the home crowd get to him but his play was not stellar.
The Thunder were led by Adams with 23 points and 11 rebounds and Russell Westbrook with another triple double, getting 10 points, 15 rebounds, and 12 assists.
OKC wins the series this season with the Pacers 2-0. OKC is on the road at the 76ers on Friday in Philadelphia. OKC is 17-1 all time against them.
